President Obama thinks some people donít like him because of his race.
ďThereís no doubt that thereís some folks who just really dislike me because they donít like the idea of a black President,Ē Obama told The New Yorkerís David Remnick in the magazineís Jan. 27 issue.
ďNow, the flip side of it is there are some black folks and maybe some white folks who really like me and give me the benefit of the doubt precisely because Iím a black President,Ē he added.
The article noted that Obama lost white voters in 2012 by historyís largest margin for a winning presidential candidate, and that his plunge in the polls last year Ė which many pundits declared the worst year of his presidency ó was steepest among whites.
Some observers immediately mocked Obama for suggesting that race ó and not his policies ó is the reason for his dismal numbers.
ďIím fine with losing my job, losing insurance, being audited. I just canít stand that heís black,Ē @OrwellForce snarked on Twitter, cramming the weak economy, Obamacare and the IRSís scrutiny of political nonprofits into one tweet.

Obama conceded that his party has sometimes appeared to shrug off ďthe concerns of middle- and working-class folks, black or white.Ē
ďAnd this was one of the great gifts of Bill Clinton to the Partyóto say, you know what, itís entirely legitimate for folks to be concerned about getting mugged, and you canít just talk about police abuse,Ē he told The New Yorker.
ďHow about folks not feeling safe outside their homes? Itís all fine and good for you to want to do something about poverty, but if the only mechanism you have is raising taxes on folks who are already feeling strapped, then maybe you need to widen your lens a little bit. And I think that the Democratic Party is better for it.Ē

Sure there are some.  But the vast majority dislike him ideologically.

Pulling the race card after being elected twice.  So ghetto!

Our president playing the race card, is it any wonder why that's so common in our society?

If Obama was a white man people would be just fine with losing their health insurance after hearing they wouldn't...period.

I'd say I can't wait until this guy is gone but Hillary is next so not much will change other than everyone will now be sexist instead of racist.

Hillary is unelectable.  Her time was 2008.  Too late now.  America won't elect an old lady.

I know for a fact my father hates President Obama because he is half-black. I like him because he got my friends out of Iraq, only two were wounded, none died. McCain wanted another "60-100 years" of an IED festival with no mission purpose.

What do you expect? Obama knows the world hates him, so what is the logical thing to do in this situation? Pull out the pity card.

You like him because your're a liberal from California :)

Seriously though, there is no doubt there are SOME people in this country who hate him because of his color, just like their are SOME people who like red jelly beans, and SOME who like green jelly beans. But, after getting re-elected without an inkling of a manifesto,  primarily on the back of the white vote, it smacks of petty excuses and self indulgence.

So I guess many fans here believe if feels something is true, he should just shut up and take it. If he mentions it, he's pulling the race card. Logic can be an interesting thing.

He is a man who knows he knows what is best for us so clearly anyone who doesn't see that must have another agenda.....bigotry. Those comments are, as you said, indicative of a mindset of a man who has a grossly overinflated sense of self.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

It questions the relevance of the statement.

He was asked about his falling poll numbers. The people who supported him before, but don't now, do so because he is black?
